So what do you like and dislike about these? What would you rate them overall?



This is not the place for a review but I'll post a full one in a week or so. I like the build quality, attention to detail, and fit of the Teknines. I don't like the lack of midrange and treble clarity, a.k.a. the 'veil' - it's really very thick and distracting. I've probably been spoiled by nicer earphones but I can't remember the last time I heard an earphone that was this veiled after two days of burn-in, and do I listen to a lot of good budget-level earphones on a daily basis. I was hoping it would clear up but hasn't so far. I think they, like the Beats, are for a very specific type of listener - one who cares more about looks than SQ. 



Glad to hear that.  The positive threads - including the one comparing them to the DBA-02 reaked of cheesy viral marketing to me.  I'm not sure if it's actually that - or if there are many bassheads that don't care about the rest of the sound spectrum.

Amazon looks to have a couple of gold box deals on some headphones today.  I am not sure what just yet, first one is at 6 AM Pacific.

UK deal for Beyerdynamic dtx100. Cheapest price i've seen for the dtx100 since launch, of course they're the white one's and not many left but for £70 you could do far worse.
